Topeak Flypaper
REVIEW DATE: 19 Jun, 2009
RRP: $6.50
Retailer(s): All good retailers Nationwide

The world's first permanent glueless patch is a bold claim, and one I was eager to see if the all new "Flypaper" from Topeak lived up to.
They have been few and far between, those times when one is stranded on the roadside "sans l'air" in the tire.  But when that moment comes nothing can be more frustrating. 
From my experiences with the Flypaper these moments are now surely a thing of the past providing you have a space the size of a $20 note folded into a 1/4 of its size.
A six pack of flypapers will set you back less than $7 and essentially give you six roadside insurance policies at the ready.
"Rough up the surface and apply" were the instructions, surely it can't be this easy?  I am pleased to announce fellow cyclists it is!  With the life duration of other patches on the market in the 3-5 days range, over a month on the almost invisible clear patch is still clinging on like one of its more laborious glue and affix rubber cousins.

Check them out at a store near you.
